Revlon One-Step Blowout Curls before and after

If you understand me, you understand my Revlon One-Step Volumizer blowout brush is as valuable to me because the One Ring was to Gollum. (Sorry, bizarre analogy, nevertheless it’s true.) It modified my relationship with my hair and I’ve been singing its praises since 2018; at this level, Revlon needs to be operating me a verify for what number of models I’ve bought by phrase of mouth alone. I’ve a Dyson Airwrap and prefer it, however I nonetheless discover myself returning to the Revlon for the final word bouncy blowout repeatedly.

Thus, I used to be extraordinarily curious concerning the new face within the One-Step household, the One-Step Blowout Curls blow dryer/curling iron combo. Wouldn’t it stack as much as my beloved One-Step Volumizer or substitute the Airwrap in my routine? It is already making waves on TikTok, so I put it to the take a look at. Forward, my sincere assessment.


The Instrument

The One-Step Blowout Curls iron is certainly a response to the success of the Airwrap and the Shark Flexstyle, to not point out the numerous tutorials for ‘90s bombshell blowouts and faux-outs on TikTok. The software combines a basic blow dryer and curling iron into one wand, curling your hair because it dries. In keeping with the model, the 360-degree barrel evenly distributes warmth and air and is gentler than a conventional curling iron or flatiron as a result of it makes use of much less warmth. A ceramic coating is meant to scale back frizz for a clean end.

The One-Step Blowout Curls iron is meant to be a extra light option to get the luxurious, bouncy blowout or lengthy, done-but-not-”performed” bombshell waves you’re seeing throughout your Instagram and TikTok, and a much less intense option to refresh second- or third-day curls with out firing up your curling wand and scorching your hair. It’s additionally extra reasonably priced than its styling friends; the iron rings up at $75 versus a whole lot of {dollars}.


My Evaluation

I’ve very thick, bleached, collarbone-length wavy-curly hair that responds effectively to warmth; I’ve been identified to stretch a method greater than 10 days. The unique One-Step Volumizer helped me grasp an at-home blowout; I’d by no means been capable of juggle a spherical brush and blow dryer, so I spent some huge cash on salon companies previous to discovering my Holy Grail styling software. Whereas I like my wavy hair (more often than not), I like a superb blowout.

My greatest problem with the Airwrap is that whereas I like the precise hair dryer and discover it dries my hair shortly and gently, the curling irons is usually a ache level. I’ve bother controlling my hair towards the air stream, even when the dryer is on low velocity. I additionally really feel extra snug utilizing a conventional clamp curling iron, so the Revlon model appeared prefer it could possibly be the reply to my hairstyling prayers.

Revlon One-Step Blowout Curls before and after

I washed my hair as typical, utilized my beloved K18 Depart-In Molecular Restore Hair Masks ($75) and let it set below a microfiber towel turban for about seven minutes, then utilized just a few spritzes of Kérastase Self-discipline Fluidissime Anti-Frizz Spray ($45) as a heat- and frizz protectant. Earlier than reaching for the One-Step Blowout Curls, I grabbed my Dyson and tough dried my hair till it was about 80% dry, then sectioned my hair and set to work, setting the Revlon iron on Medium warmth since my hair is thick and dry.

For those who’re aware of a conventional clamp curling iron, utilizing the One-Step Blowout Curls will come naturally. Revlon recommends utilizing the included concentrator brush attachment on the roots for quantity, which was straightforward to pop on and gave a bit raise. The ceramic coating helps it glide by hair and the iron itself is light-weight sufficient that you simply don’t really feel as if you’re doing a bicep exercise in your rest room. I began with my bangs and labored in sections, curling my hair below in locations, flipping it out in others for extra motion and setting the highest layers in ringlet curls earlier than brushing them out with my fingers as soon as they’d cooled, all to get a really feel for the software.

All in all, the method took about 25 minutes; I can get by my total head in about 12 minutes with the One-Step Volumizer and about 20 with the Airwrap. An enormous grievance I hear concerning the Volumizer is that it will get actually, actually sizzling actually quick, which is true, however the One-Step Blowout Curls didn’t warmth up in the identical approach, even once I turned the warmth to Excessive for a short second. (And no burnt hair scent, a serious plus.) The curls had been considerably wilted within the morning, however I used to be actually impressed with how the iron labored to refresh second-day hair; I turned it to Excessive warmth and it was each bit as highly effective as a flatiron or curling iron.

My finish verdict: It’s like, not love. I feel this iron is greatest for somebody with thinner hair than mine; even after tough drying, it was exhausting to get every part utterly dry utilizing the iron. You probably have lengthy hair and love the free blowout waves look, the iron will in all probability be a sport changer for you, however the One-Step Blowout Curls isn’t going to utterly substitute the remainder of my sizzling styling instruments. I see myself utilizing it as extra of a ending software than a full styling software—a useful a part of my haircare arsenal, however undoubtedly not a alternative for my beloved blowout brush(es)!
